My friends 2002 ford focus zx3 brake lights stay on unless in park How can I fix this Has anyone even heard of such a problem?

It sounds as if the contact switch that controls the brake lights may be faulty or out of adjustment. Under the dash, look to where the brake pedal lever is suspended and you should see an electrical switch with a "plunger" that is ALMOST in contact with the pedal lever. This is the switch that senses when the brake pedal has been applied and activates the brake lights. It is, necessarily, a 'tight' adjustment. If it has slipped out of adjustment it may be sensing that the brakes are always 'on.' If not, then the switch may be worn out and needs to be replaced. The actual problem is your 3rd brake light. I had the same problem, my brake lights stayed on when it was out of Park. We replaced the brake light switch as recommended. Being very frustrated with the problem, I started to troubleshoot. We took off the 3rd brake unit and not only were the lights burned out, but the unit had started to melt. I went to a Ford Dealership and picked up the complete unit for just around $40.00. Now the problem has been solved. I hope this helps others.

If NONE of the brake lights are working (including the "high mount" center light, I'd check the stop light switch next. It is located up under the dashboard near the top of the brake pedal lever. CHeck to see that it is still in proper adjustment (barely touching the lever, and if it is, it may need replacement.
